Strange Conspiracy Theories Surrounding the Sussexes’ Christmas Card

The Christmas card’s unique look spawned a lot of rumors. Some claim that the family portrait is just a figment of the illustrator’s imagination, whereas others weave a sophisticated web of intrigues. For example, that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have divorced.
There are two conspiracy theories at once surrounding the couple’s one-year-old son Archie. Either there is no heir at all, and all the family photos feature different children, or he has remained to live with the Windsors because the Queen did not allow the couple to take her great-grandson out of the country.
In truth, Meghan’s mother took the original photo at the Sussexes’ new home in Montecito, California. Apparently, Archie picked the small Christmas tree and ornaments. The couple plan to replant the evergreen after the holidays. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are still happily married and raising their baby son, even doing good deeds on his behalf.
